Married At First Sight’s Sam Ball returned to Instagram last week, after recently graduating from the Kapooka Army Recruit Training program in Wagga Wagga.
And according to our military insider, the 28-year-old has been making a good impression on his senior trainers after deciding to quit showbiz and join the army.
Here’s what they told us.
‘We all heard it was because he couldn’t get a job and needed to join the army. One of the trainers in Kapooka said Sam was there in the training course, which is why he now has the shaved head. He [Sam] was way fitter than the 17-year-olds in his training RGT (Army Remote Ground Terminal). But seeing what his body looks like and how fit he is, it’s not surprising. Good on him for doing this. It’s not easy being in the military. Let’s hope he sticks with it. He had to do four years to even get in. The usual process is a solider starts at Kapooka, then they send you to RGT. Not sure exactly where they will send Sam next, but he will now have to serve in the army for four years. Also shit money for that time too. If he takes this seriously he’ll make an amazing solider. He is focussed and very impressive.’
Before appearing on Married At First Sight, Sam worked as a tradesman and part-time model and actor in Sydney, and appeared in several episodes of Home and Away.
Following his rise to fame, he started a quickly abandoned YouTube channel and was last known to be working in a bottle shop in Coolangatta back in January.
It’s great to see he’s now found something he’s passionate about!
